One of the most unique characteristics of ESK is our inclusive and family-centered community. We are very active outside of school and have events and extracurricular activities for students year round.
ESK incooporates the Tribes Agreements into daily classroom life to teach our students personal responsibility.
Our teachers are highly educated. Because of the low student-to-teacher ratio, our teachers are able to get to know your child as more than a student, but as a member of the community.
All Episcopal classes participate in community service projects. A few of the charities that we have worked with in the past include: FISH Hospitality Pantry, The Love Kitchen, Friends of the Smokies, The Volunteer Ministry Center and LAMBS.
ESK sponsors over 30 teams in 11 sports at the Lower School and Middle School levels. ESK students participate in traditional sports such as basketball and swimming, as well as non-traditional programs like bowling and clay target shooting. Over 90 percent of students play an extra-curricular sport at school before they graduate.
Numerous clubs and extracurricular activities are available to ESK students. Membership is so enjoyable that most Middle School students participate in more than one activity.
ESK makes many clubs and extracurricular activities available to the students. Most students enjoy membership with middle school students participating in more than one.
We welcome and celebrate all faiths. However, like other Episcopal schools, we place particular value on classical learning, individual attention, mutual respect and inclusiveness. We recognize the importance of worship, community life, religious formation and social justice however students may conceive of these concepts. We believe ESK’s hybrid independent -Episcopal school identity to be the best of both worlds, allowing us to uniquely nurture academic excellence, critical thinking and character development in our students.
